Favorite single lyric of all-time. Yeah, that's right... only one!

Recommended Posts

I believe when they found the body of general george a.

custer quilled like a porcupine with indian arrows, he didn't

die with any honor, any dignity, nor any valor.

I wouldn't doubt when they found george a. custer

an american general patriot and

indian fighter, he died with shit in his pants

I heard one of my old favorites on the radio this morning:

"I wasn't born, so much as I fell out..."

Nice thread.



"Standing on the corner,

suitcase in my hand

Jack is in his corset, and Jane is her vest,

And me I'm in a rock'n'roll band Hah!

Ridin' in a Stutz Bear Cat, Jim

You know, those were different times!

Oh, all the poets they studied rules of verse

And those ladies, they rolled their eyes

Sweet Jane! Whoa! Sweet Jane, oh-oh-a! Sweet Jane!

I'll tell you something

Jack, he is a banker

And Jane, she is a clerk

Both of them save their monies, ha

And when, when they come home from work

Oh, Sittin' down by the fire, oh!

The radio does play

The classical music there, Jim

The March of the Wooden Soldiers

All you protest kids

You can hear Jack say, get ready, ah

Sweet Jane! Come on baby! Sweet Jane! Oh-oh-a! Sweet Jane!

Some people, they like to go out dancing

And other peoples, they have to work, Just watch me now!

And there's even some evil mothers

Well they're gonna tell you that everything is just dirt

Y'know that, women, never really faint

And that villains always blink their eyes, woo!

And that, y'know, children are the only ones who blush!

And that, life is just to die!

And, everyone who ever had a heart

They wouldn't turn around and break it

And anyone who ever played a part

Oh wouldn't turn around and hate it!

Sweet Jane! Whoa-oh-oh! Sweet Jane! Sweet Jane!

Heavenly wine and roses

Seems to whisper to her when he smiles

Heavenly wine and roses

Seems to whisper to her when she smiles

La lala lala la, la lala lala la

Sweet Jane

Sweet Jane

Sweet Jane"

god-dammit, yes - on both of these


ripple is about as good as it gets, lyrically and musically



Sandy, the aurora is rising behind us

This pier lights our carnival life forever

Oh love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever

Oh me and Sandy girl

Now now now now now baby

Yeah promise Sandy girl

Shala la la la baby



If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine

Mama stroked his dinger

Daddy got a sticky finger

In those days of long ago-o




Later in the evening

He'd refrain, she'd complain

He'd go home and hone his bo-one




How about this one:


Charva, I loved you

I loved you through and through

I loved you since in grammar school

When we were sniffing glue

I loved you purty baby doll

And I don't know what in the world to do about it



Charva, my darling

The only love I had

I hope you will forgive me, dear

For punching out your dad

I loved you, I loved you

And I don't know what in the world I'm gonna do about it




I remember, remember the junior prom

And I remember the time I broke your father's arm

And I remember, remember all the love we shared

Every place and everywhere


Oh Charva, Charva

I love you more and more

I swear it ain't because your father owns a liquor store

Charva, my baby

I love you and I don't know what to do about it

Oh-oh Charva

Ooooohh oh-oh Charva

Ooooohh, come back my little darling Charva

I love you so much, honey

Come back to me, Charva

Please Charva, please come back . . .

I just want to be there when the shit hits the fan

Catch it all in a bucket and then use what I can...

Had a coat of fine leather and snakeskin boots

But that coat always had a tread hangin' loose

Well I pulled it one night and to my surprise

It led me right past your house and on over the rise

One soft infested summer me and Terry became friends

Trying in vain to breathe the fire we was born in

Catching rides to the outskirts tying faith between our teeth

Sleeping in that old abandoned beach house getting wasted in the heat

And hiding on the backstreets

No one wants to hear

what you dreamt about

unless you dreamt about them


Don't let that stop you

tell them anyway

and you can make it up as you go.


- Doug Martsch (Built to Spill)



And also...of course:


Please beware the quiet front yard

I warned you before there were water skies

I warned you not to drive

dry your eyes you poor devil.

You hurt me baby

I flinch so when you do

Your kisses scourge me

Hyssop in your perfume

Oh, I do not fear you

And slave I only use

As a word to describe the special way I feel for you

You look like me

And I look like no one else

We need no other

As long as we have ourselves

But I won't cry about it

Every time you get obsessed

Every time I came undressed

All ugly thoughts are gone

I'm sure we'll all be friends

I'll try to break your back

You'll try to make amends

Curse softly to me baby

And smother me in your love

Temptation comes not from hell but from above

And there's blood on my teeth

When I bite my tongue to speak

Zip me down, kiss me there

I can smile now

You won't find out ever

Hurt me baby

I flinch so when you do

Your kisses scourge me

Hyssop in your perfume

Oh I do not fear you

And slave I only use as a word to describe

The way I feel when I'm with you

If I have to lie about it everytime I came undressed
